This is outrageous!

According to reports, last week, at least 100 gay men had been rounded up in Chechnya, and three of those men had been killed.

This week, horrifying news continues to emerge from the the southern Russian republic.

Reports state that Chechyna has opened up concentration camps for homosexuals, where gay men are allegedly being tortured with electric shocks, and beaten to death. 

The Daily Mail has more:

One of the camps is reportedly at the former military headquarters in the town of Argun. 

Svetlana Zakharova, from the Russian LGBT Network, told MailOnline: 'Gay people have been detained and rounded up and we are working to evacuate people from the camps and some have now left the region. 

'Those who have escaped said they are detained in the same room and people are kept altogether, around 30 or 40. They are tortured with electric currents and heavily beaten, sometimes to death.' 

One of those who escaped told Novoya Gazeta that prisoners were beaten to force them to reveal other members of the gay community.

Another prisoner who fled said that before being incarcerated in one of the camps, he had been forced to pay bribes to Chechen police of thousands of rubles every month in order to survive. 

Now the regime had taken another step against gays by creating these camps, the survivor said.  

Alexander Artemyev, from Amnesty International in Russia, told MailOnline: 'We can only call on the Russian authorities to investigate the allegations. Homosexuals in Chechyna are treated very harshly and prosecuted daily and they are afraid to talk about it. 

'They either have to hide or leave the republic. We are keeping in touch with the LGBT network that helps people in Russia to find shelter. The problem is people there cannot talk about it as it puts their lives and those they speak to, in danger. This is the main issue we are facing in Russia and the main challenge.' 

Although his regime denies the accusations, President Razman Kadyrov, an essential ally to Vladimir Putin, is allegedly linked to what reports have described as an LGBT "purge."

What doesn't even start to make sense to these barbarians is that gay folks are the answer to population explosion.   We usually don't produce offspring and often take unwanted children as our own.  Yes, we are part of the answer to a very complicated problem.  I believe in evolution and this is a logical evolutionary path forward.  Please, let us help the world, we are not dangerous.

This is horrifying.  Why aren't other countries, including the US, doing everything possible to free these men immediately and get them out of Chechnya?  Is the United Nations going to get involved?  Are we going to ignore this as so many did when Jews were being put in concentration camps?  Are Trump and his toadies going to say ANYTHING?  What about the Pope?  This savage inhumanity must stop NOW!
